This is an encounter of generations, German percussionist and free-jazz pioneer Sommer meets Scottish saxophonist MacDonald…free jazz in all its glory…loose, intense and furious, not in anger but with “joie de vivre”…’
Günter ‘Baby’ Sommer is regarded as one of the founding fathers of German free improvisation. Raymond MacDonald is a founding member of the ground-breaking Glasgow Improvisers Orchestra, and over a 30-year career, has worked with a host of outstanding musicians across the spectrum of contemporary music.
Their performances are characterised as charismatic, free-wheeling, joyous and spontaneous music making that can electrify a room with subtle textures, fiery passion and glorious rhythms!
Catch them at Platform as part of their 2019 tour.
